100 Degrees

Urban Decay 100 Degrees Vice Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a glossy, shiny finish. It looked like a glossy balm and less like a lipstick in finish, but it had a slight tackiness for better adhesion (and more consistent with the Vice formula). The finish is “Sheer,” which Urban Decay describes as a “punch of color with a sheer, shiny finish,” and I’d say that’s somewhat accurate–100 Degrees ran a bit more pigmented (more like medium to semi-opaque). The color applied smoothly to my lips and didn’t drag with fairly even application and minimal color that settled into my lip lines (which wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance). It wore well for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.11 oz. - $163.64 Per Ounce

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing.

Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing.

Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red).

Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration.

Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration.

Heatwave

Urban Decay Heatwave Vice Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a rich, deep copper-brown with warm, red undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, creamy texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin but had enough substance to adhere well and yield rich coverage despite the shine. There was a smidgen of product that did get into my deeper lip lines, but the opacity and metallic sheen made it hard to see it from a normal viewing distance (just in the close-up photos). It lasted for five hours and was hydrating while worn.

Tower 1

Urban Decay Tower 1 Vice Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) has a sheer, peach base with a medium amount of sparkle (a mix of gold and pink) paired with a glossy sheen. It had a more balm-like texture that was lightweight and emollient, so it applied without dragging and tugging, and I only could feel the glittery bits just slightly when I pressed my lips together. It was labeled as a “Metallized” finish, and it’s extremely sheer, which isn’t how the Metallized formula is described, unfortunately. I think that this should have been part of the “Sheer Shimmer” finish, which would have made a lot more sense. It lasted for two and a half hours but was moisturizing.
